The beauty of the Piedmont is well reflected on the grounds of River Landing Inn. Hickory, oak, maple, poplar and dogwood trees abound. Blackberry bushes line our entryway and paths. Acres of rolling pasture surrounds the Inn, and lead to a walking trail overlooking the Haw River. Deer, rabbits, a wide variety of birds and other wildlife are seen from the comfort of an outdoor picnic table or lawn chair, along the walking trails, or from the privacy of your own courtyard.
Fresh beans are ground each morning for a delicious cup of coffee to start your day. A continental breakfast consisting of homemade breads, muffins, jams, a variety of cold cereals and granola, fresh fruit, milk and juice are also included. With advance notice, we can provide more specific items for breakfast. If you are not going out to the Saxapahaw General Store or The Eddy for dinner, feel free to use the outdoor grill to have your own picnic or cookout.
